A creep would say the best place to fly a drone is outside the bedroom window of a hot neighbor, which we’re both proud and disturbed to say happened to one of us recently. Given the human imagination, there are plenty of warped ways this increasingly popular flying camera machine can be abused. Let’s take the high road here and hope you do as well. Laguna Beach is a geographically eye-pleasing location, but city officials earlier this year imposed numerous flight restrictions that include Main Beach and Heisler Park. For the best, least-worrisome droning, visit Huntington State Beach, where authorities haven’t yet issued related ordinances. You can capture spectacular images of crashing waves; surfing; packs of high, inked-up skinheads; and pools of swimming ocean animals.
Beach Boulevard and Pacific Coast Highway, Huntington Beach.
